We may have been taught not to say anything at all if we have nothing nice to say. Yet at the same time, it can be damaging to sweep things under the rug and keep quiet out of fear of hurting others' feelings, if there is something they ought to know. Confronting someone directly however well intentioned, can elicit a defensive response from them, and your words could be met with discomfort and criticism.

How can we then find the balance and speak with our colleagues, partners or children to enact change and growth?

Join Coach Takeshi and Su Chern in this lunchtime webinar as they share how to create an emotionally safe space for the person you are speaking to with Radical Candor for discovery and mutual understanding, without fear of repercussion.
